their lives in that attack, trying to protect americans. and that is a different thing. i don't think -- that has, in my opinion, no relationship to what happened in iran which was all caught up with where the shah was going, what the reaction would be, whether we had adequate security. what happened in libya, the ambassador wanted to get out, he wanted to not be holed up in the embassy in tripoli. he realized there was some risk because this happened in iraq, too, but in a different way. when you get rid of an old regime, you know, one of the things they try to maintain control of was their security services, for obvious reasons. every dictatorship does, right? so they took down the old security service, and they hadn't really built -- had time to build up their own. and there was a lot of weapons floating loose in the country. but i think the american people, for all the tragedy here, could take a lot of comfort in the fact that libyan citizens stormed the offices of some of these militia groups to get the weapons out. they are trying to fix it. >> i mean, they forced a couple of th
not be better in the morning, you don't know. consider that it will be. the first and the last were optimism. it all deals with creating an image of confidence with an organization. you can do anything or we're great. you don't believe it? let's make it happen. >> people talk about how america is in certain collapse. any time you go to europe, i love europe. i'm not going to talk about the chocolate makers, but when you go to europe and especially great britain, you don't get the sense of optimism you don't get when you land back here in america. i heard you talk about the force multiplier. you multiply that 300 million times over, what a powerful force. >> i spend a lot of time out in the countryside talking to all kinds of audiences. trade associations and financial organizations and they are all worried about the economy and the unemployment rate. they haven't lost confidence. they are hustling and trying to make a living so that people make a better living for their families. don't count this place out. it will never be out. >> the second rule runs counter to what the reality is in washi
of over 150,000 american men and women in my hands. i don't want to make a mistake. i'm human, and i recognize that i might. and i worry about that. regardless of the outcome, if when this whole thing is over i can say to myself, you gave it your best shot, then that's got to be enough. >> good morning. it's he friday, december 28th. on set with us the co-host of "sfreet signs" is brian sullivan who just showed up here. president of the national action network is rev raend al sharpton and fortune editor lee gallagher in washington, vice president and executive director of msnbc.com. that was general norman swa schwartzkopf you saw on your screen who passed away yesterday. i have a lasting memory of general schwartzkopf who served in the war in vietnam as well as leading gulf storm one. there was a woman from iowa. her name was peg mullen. she wrote a book about the death of her son, michael mullen. the name of the book was "friendly fire." norman schwartzkopf was the battalion commander. he was so approachable to peg mullen, so human in his relations with peg mullen, who sought to fi
somewhere in the middle of where both parties stand. and we also know that if we don't act, 100% of the american people are going to start feeling an impact of higher taxes. i honestly don't worry about the millionaires and billionaires at all. i don't worry about the people who are fine, who don't even really know or care that much about a tax hike that takes them back to the clinton years when they did very well. i don't worry about those folks. i worry about the folks in the middle. and there are always arguments about what is that line? and some say the middle class is at $75,000, some say $150,000, some even go higher because there are states like my state that are very high cost-of-living states. but we know, if we're going to get a deal, we're going to have to meet somewhere in the middle. to me, if we fail, it will be a very, very sad moment in history. and i hear a lot of talk about the sequester. well, mr. president, i don't know exactly how you voted, but i want to say that i voted for a sequester, if we couldn't find savings as part of a debt limit deal. and i'm not
but it that it doesn't factor into the intellectual decision i don't think. >> very well put. i was just going to say that i would like to echo just a little bit of that and the separatioseparatio n of the military and the civilian populace is something i talk about at other times so i think that's, if you don't live in north carolina or texas or southern california, and they'll see people in uniform it was true from a growing up in buffalo new york and i got my rtc scholarship in 1995 so that was a very different culture and time. it's not that long ago but 9/11 really did change so many things and i thought i wanted to be an astronaut. i thought i was going to do all these other things but i went to school between the invasions of afghanistan and iraq and i knew exact to what i was signing up for and i wanted to do it anyway. that would make me the same as young men between the age of 16 and 30, for the last 5 million years. the consequences just are not there. there is this part of the brain that has the self-preservation instinct and i was born without it. maybe all the other guys i worked with w
this mean for the fiscal cliff discussions? >> well, i don't think it really means a whole lot. i think it is -- sort of the white house's way, treasurer's way, of putting extra pressure on the people in the building behind us. by the way, none of them are there. i'm not sure that's really going to work, frankly. and -- i -- john, our colleague john harwood is exactly right. this is not a surprise. we knew this was coming. the question that it is, you know, three days -- thee business days, as you say before, the actual deadline itself, that's disconcerting. but -- again, it is not surprising. i don't think it has any -- will peak the negotiations at all, frankly. not at all. >> what about the secretary's use of this phrase -- the country would otherwise default on its legal obligations. i think he purposefully use this phrase default to confuse the public and -- during the last debt ceiling debate we had the same confusion as if the u.s. government would not pay interest on its debts. have -- you know perfectly well will is about a million things. i have been in the country where they
in egypt and i thought if i don't get myself there, i'm never going. i'm going to be like moses having seen the land that never entered. [laughter] and i made a reservation with the mileage i had. i decided instead of doing some dumb sure, i would rent an apartment for a few months and just take my work with me, since i write, i could do that, which i did. i did know anyone there. i didn't have one in. i have teams, i didn't know anybody. and as i said i ended up going during a war, but it wasn't even sure what was going to happen. i stayed because i love it and it didn't need to come back. i mean, i would come back to work every few months, but i met somebody good friends. i have more good friends there that ahead in california. i have kids in california and family. i don't know what happened and why i'm still there, quite frankly. it's just that, i can tell you i haven't mastered the language which is one of the great failures of my life, but i still don't want to leave. but as far as what people think, first of all, you go into israel. there are million kinds of jews. there's any kind of
for you. leading off tonight josh green and chris frats of national journal. you don't have to be as clear as i, but try, gentlemen, tonight. it looks to me like one party, guns again it's asymmetric. both parties are not screwing around, one is. is that true? >> i think both parties want to go over the cliff. >> both want to go over the cliff? who will get blamed. >> i think republicans will get blamed but i think republicans at this point fear casting a career-threatening vote to raise taxes instead of waiting four days and letting the cliff -- >> and then they can technically say -- >> they're voting for a tax cut. >> do they presume the voters are that dumb? they think there's a difference? they might think that. >> they might. >> do they think the voters are that dumb to think three days difference in how you vote with the exact same result exonerates for having been an apostate on the hard world tea party. >> i think a lot of the republicans aren't worried about the general voter at large or what the national polls say -- >> only their base is stupid. they think only their base is st
season to be eradicated by the public square, i don't hear the voices of people who think that christmas is meaningless and useless, if they thought that, merely be mildly amused some of us spend so much energy in the acknowledgment, celebration and meaningness of this day. and the action is not benign amusement, not scorn and most certainly not indifference. it's angry, venomous and high volume rage, as if the opponents of christmas are afraid that the whole story might just be true. because if they really thought it was a fairy tale and felt like the fairy tale they claimed it to be. they not only would be unmoved by some of our wasting our time, energy and money over it, they'd actually be glad that we extended so much effort on something that was utterly meaningless. but the degree of hostility with the christmas message is a sign of fear. i mean, after all, you don't fear a stuffed bear in the museum, but you sure would fear an eight foot tall grizzly bear that you met in the woods growling just inches from your face. so, people who think god is dead and that the birth of jesus is n
and we don't be what that will be and we should get more clarity on that tomorrow if there is, in account fa, a meeting at the white house we might find out what they're hammering out behind closed doors. >> thus far, democrats have refused to do any meaningful entitlement reform and republicans have refused to do anything related to taxes. we both know each side wants a piece of the other to do those exact things and both sides still refuse. is there anything that means those two factors have changed. >> we saw it on the stock market today and we saw the wild swings as news developments happened throughout the course of the day. it impacted the market throughout date and if that continues that kind of pressure from the outside could really put some force on these members of congress to come together for a deal. the closer we get the more pressure from the outside they're going feel and i think it makes it easier, not harder to get a deal in the last 48 to 24 hour space lot of folks have said that's the sweet spot for a deal anyway and there's another group that says we're going over this
a small deal could look like. guys, we don't have a whole lot of information on what's going to happen in that meeting. i should also mention that joe biden, the vice president, will be in there. of course, he led some of the early talks and they were all about trying to avoid this problem a year or more ago. those got nowhere. the talks over the summer got nowhere and so far the talks that are going on now have gotten nowhere as well, michelle. >> eamon, the last two things that you talked about, the doc fix for medicare, you don't cut what you pay doctors for medicare. >> that's right. >> turning off the sequester, they're talking about spending more money. no talk anywhere in his plan about any kind of spending cuts. >> yeah. remember, i'm laying out sort of a potential plan that the president could offer. you're right about those two items. also take a look at what's not on there. what the president didn't mention on friday of last week is the debt ceiling. now we have treasury secretary tim geithner reminding the country and the world that the united states is going to start to ru
their colleagues to pass something before the end of the year. they don't think it's a win for them to keep fighting. that means letting taxes go up on the rich. let's see what senator isaacson said. >> the truth of the matter is if we go off the cliff, the president will come back and proposing what he said in washington and we'll adopt it. why should we put the markets in turmoil and people in misunderstanding and lack of confidence? why don't we act now? >> okay so he says might as well do it. but you know the republican reason for not doing it now is? >> senate republicans want a deal done. but house republicans are in total chaos. >> why do they want a deal january 3rd or 4th rather than now? >> if all tax rates go up, any deal can be called a tax cut. it's simple like that. if you go over the cliff, anything's a tax cut. >> if you do it now how's it interpreted? >> the interpretation will some primary voters is you danced around on rates. >> or they pass a bill cutting taxes continuing the bush tax cuts for under $500,000 a year. something they agree on. >> because of what bob's sayin
in the public scare. i don't hear the voices of people who think it is meaningless or useless. they would be mildly amused that so much of us spend so much in the energy and acknowledgment and the meaning of the cherished day. the reaction is not benign amusement or scorn or indifference. it is angry and venomous and high volume rage. it is like they're afraid it would be true. if they thought it was a fairy tale and thought it like what they claimed it to be. they would be unmoved by our waisting time and energy and money over it, they would be glad we extended so much effort on something that was utterly meaningless . the degree of hosility is a sign of fear. you don't fear a stuffed bear in the musime. but you would fear an eight foot tall grisly bear that you had growling inches from your face. people who think that god is dead and the birth of jesus is for coward and weaklings. they would react in our christian observances . some curiosity and no real eal reaction or fear . when i see the vicious and irerational reaction?we have holiday trees instead of christmas trees. no. i am made
will crash a little bit. i don't want to say crash as in crash but we could retrace some of the gains and a rough start to 2013 until they finally realize that maybe the large-cap companies could be leading us through the rallies. maybe it will take the stocks back up the latter half of 2013, first quarter. >> oliver, what are you doing with your clients' money right now? >> we think there will be a selloff as a result of all of this and also the debt ceiling debate coming up at the end of january and that's a buying opportunity because there's relatively strong, and strong gdp growth in the second half of 2013 so we would see a 5%, 7% selloff as a heck of a buying opportunity early in the year. >> i see you've got a year-end target for 2013. 1540, actually -- just looking at the 2013 predictions, you're pretty bullish. >> yeah. we think we're going to see a 6%, 6.5% return on the s&p. we think dividend-paying stocks will do even better and will focus on companies that are growing revenues and paying a strong dend. >> can i ask you a question about that scenario. >> of course. >> supp
of those cars and went to get some of the papers out of the glove department. >> i don't know why you'd want to swim in those waters. who only knows what's down there. >> lots of videos from iraq of how much flooding and devastation from days and days of rain. >>> there's a plumber in colorado springs, colorado, that shows up and does work even if you don't want him to. >> the plumber is a little odd, though, because the plumber is a black bear. >> what is he working in there? >> this is a decorative pond. suddenly this bear started appearing and getting in their decorative pond as a cooling pool. >> he thought it was the reverse jacuz jacuzzi. instead of getting warm, he wanted to cool off. >> you can see this is a small little decorative pond. this black bear thought it's not quite big enough. there's some pesky little obstructions in there. i'm going to do some plumber work and maybe some electrical work and make this a better pool for myself. >> oh, my gosh, he's pulling the wire out. >> watch as he gets the entire thing. he pulls it out. >> that's funny. he's like this thing is t
, as a professor once said, he was doing a lot. what he was really doing was keeping us out of war. and you don't get credit for things that don't happen. but he for eight years, got us out -- we were in korea when we got in, he got us out by bluffing, basically. >> brinksmanship. >> threatening to use the bomb and other things. then he spent the next eight years at a scary, dangerous time. the cold war is getting going, nuclear weapons are new things, communist threats all over the place. he basically bluffed our way through eight years. we didn't lose any soldiers, department get into any wars, stayed out of vietnam. >> the economy exploded, created the interstate system, invested in science. >> and balanced the budget while he was doing it. and there was huge pressure on him to spend more defense, and he was the one guy who understood how to stop that. he used to talk about "those boys at the pentagon," i know them. >> he knew those boys at the pentagon. doris, here's a great example of lyndon johnson, the man you knew so well. lyndon johnson wouldn't go out holding press conferences talking
was comparatively pretty good, this the president said no, now you don't want to raise tax rates because the economy is fragile. gdp is worse now, is that? >> i think almost exactly two years ago, the president said the economy is too fragile to raise taxes on anyone. so what you have essentially was a deal that was put together. remember back in december of 2010 when we were facing a very similar situation where they agreed to extend all the tax cuts for two years. by the way, that is why we are facing this new fiscal cliff. it is infuriating to business owners. i have been talking to a lot of them last couple of weeks. this is banana republic type of politics. no one knows what it will look like. it makes it impossible for businesses to do planning, purchasing equipment, hiring workers. you are seeing the impact on the stock market already where we have a lousy 10 days with stocks because everybody is in this kind of state of fear and trepidation that we are going to go over this cliff. i will give you a sliver of good news, i talked to some of my sources in the republican leadership and they say
. barnicle, what gifts did you give? >> i give a gift that you don't have to assemble to everyone in my family. i give myself. that's it. that's all you get. all right? and that is all you get right now. >> boo! >> this is harsh. this is harsh. all right. "morning joe" starts right now. >>> make no mistake about it, if we go over it, god forbid, and i still don't think we have to, the american people are going to blame the republican party, and they'll come right back and pass something. so i don't think the middle class is at risk. because if we go over the cliff, our republican colleagues are going to come back and say uh-oh and then pass the bill we passed in the senate already. >> i think $250,000 is too low a threshold. a lot of working people who are couples would exceed that, and i don't think we need that kind of shock to the system. however, i've talked to some of my democratic colleagues, and they are saying maybe in the $400,000 or $500,000 category, we could set a benchmark. i do think it is essential that we start talking about what amount can be passed on a bipartisan basi
board of education was about even though it was implicit our kids don't know much history. what they do know is wrong. it is based on the work of greater science. but we have a big sweep because we could couple this with the showtime documentary to make it more dramatic. >> just like a basic text history 101. these books are not coherent. there is no pattern. we don't understand how that works. to some degree the united states always comes out ahead or okay. >> if you take if the chinese history. >> to see it through the other rise in? >> but he said with gap what we said looks to the russians obamacare has some of that ability. >> talk about obama. your chapter is entitled provocatively. [laughter] in some ways they've made it worse. >> the longest chapter of the book. >> it might get longer. >> then i see the cuts that we have to make but to deal with a contemporary is a lot of interest in obama. then to pull back. >> but there were people on the right to and those who would disagree to say he apologizes for america and pulls out from the allies and those that say he should not send t
, with the passage of don't ask and don't tell, we have that particular partner going on as well. and so, they are also embraced as far as being part of the, uh, the family as well. and even the veterans administration, i think, is looking very carefully at their definition of family even now, and trying to determine what is the best way to capture those individuals who are, are in a person's life who have an emotional attachment and who are so important for their support. and, i think, the unique circumstances of the past decade at war, in terms of the nature of the conflicts, has also sort of, really pushed that, that issue to the forefront with regard to military members, um, are often married to other military members. so, when you have, um, multiple deployment, sometimes both parents deployed, um, really the definition of who is assuming a lot of these family roles is changing. it can be other members of the community, um, very often it's children that are assuming a lot of the parental responsibilities, if you will, um, in the face of both parents being deployed or one parent being
guest of all . new survey said one family most people don't want at the christmas table. let us know your thoughts. "fox and friends" begins right now. >> this is scotty knox, you are watching "fox and friends", happy holidays, what? i am the only one? >> that's how we talk around here. >> gretchen: it is christmas eve. we have clayton morris . rich -- rick with us. >> it is the first time. i only have done it one other time. >> it will be great and we have great for you . we'll talk about what is coming up on the fiscal cliff. have you got your holiday shopping done yet? are you done? >> gretchen: i am waiting for three things to come in the mail that they might not arrive. >> i an alert said winter weather causing shipping delays. >> if you are worried about your packages in christmas eve, you delayed yourself. >> gretchen: blame the weather guy. l>> i ordered it on friday. >> gretchen: merry christmas . still no deal in sight just more of the same way blame game . e week before the taxes are going to sky rocket. steve is live in washington. >> good morning, gretchen and everybody.
not believe of considered one of what i call terminal censorship. now, go back to history, and i don't just mean the person. i'm talking about the society in which i live, in which i was raised, the history of my people. as i never ate in "of africa," when the european explorers -- when i'm there rate in "of africa," the christian missionaries came to africa on the mission of conversion. we had a very serious problem. and that was we couldn't find satan. they couldn't find the devil. if you want to convert people, you've got to first or persuade them that their soul is in dire danger. headed for the ultimate bonfire on the other side of existence. and for that, you need to label them followers of the devil. diabolical human beings. so they look for the devil, and looked among the deities, a very complex religion, very elaborate, very wel well structd it and it looked among the do you tease and they found issue, a dod called issue. i often refer to issue as the imminent dialect vision of the human condition. why do i call him that? issue is an unpredictable spirit. issue exists, teach humani

a bill too. we passed a bill that does the same thing. why don't you just take our bill and go ahead and get it through? we need your help. >> they could well do that. the bill that has the $250,000 or below. it's interesting now that essentially here we have speaker boehner walking away saying well the senate has to act. they can do whatever. we're going to say on vacation. who does harry reid have to negotiate with them? where does he go? >> the president and harry reid can only negotiate so much. >> the question becomes if they can get a bill for 250 and below perhaps with the unemployment insurance attached to it, maybe put in sweetener with the estate tax, could they guarantee that would pass the house of representatives? from the statement we do not know that. >> jared, last week it was speaker boehner himself who could not get his own bill passed, the plan "b." and yet here he is trying to put it back on democrats and the president to get the bill passed making it clear they're not prepared to come back to washington and do anything to avoid the fiscal cliff. what do you think
. and the marks don't like it at all, 158 points now tanking and falling further in the after market and we'll have to see how asia opens on monday. it could be ugly. the headlines are falling fast and furious. we're all over it "the kudlow report" starts right now. >>> welcome. i'm michelle caruso-cabrera in for larry kudlow. a lot happened in just the last couple of hours. >> michelle, there's considerably more optimism after the white house meeting between the president and the four bipartisan leaders than there was earlier in the day. mitch mcconnell and harry reid say they're going to come out and try to hammer out a bipartisan deal that can pass the senate with enough republican votes to convince the house to act and even president obama who had been concerned that they were not going to act and challenging them for an up and down vote said he was optimistic. here's the president after that meeting. >> i just had a good and constructive discussion at the white house with senate and house leadership about how to prevent this tax hike on the middle class and i'm optimistic we may still
, you don't understand. he was want trying to single out for know. he was trying to get for all of the states. i wanted to get an opt out in case the state wanted to opt out. finally the supreme court gave that. but it got used against me while i was drying something that i shouldn't have. and actually i was not. and the interesting thing is i was asked to do this by the nebraska governor, and i did finally get an thank you from another governor from another state. >> that wasn't the so-called kickback. >> that's right. >> during the time you experienced the radio talk show host circuit and the table tv circuit. what was the period like? what do you think that echo chamber in american policy today does for the system? >> the echo chamber is a difficult thing to deal with it. it's not just broadcast, it's the blogs, the tweets, all the electronic communications today. whey found . >> that's been during the twelve years. in 2000 we didn't have . >> that's right. suddenly, you know, and i think i was prepared for what would happen with that i certainly wasn't. as a matter of fact i
to be determined later, the threshold of that income-- and some federal benefit. and if they don't reach a deal, he will have his own plan "b." >> if we don't see an agreement hetween the two leaders in the senate, i expect a bill to go on the floor, and i've asked senator reid to do this, put a eill on the floor that makes tare that taxes on middle class families don't go up, that unemployment insurance is still ploylable for two million people, and that lays the dioundwork then for additional deficit reduction and economic growth steps that we can take in ane new year. but let's not miss this deadline. neat's bare minimum that we should be able to get done. >> reporter: the president is pushing very hard, jeff, for that extension of unemployment benefits for americans who have been jobless for six months or more. they start losing that federal rsd starting tomorrow morning. and it appears the president will get his way on that. the key sticking point now is at what level do higher income taxes apply? what income threshold? .he president said $250,000 per household. that was his campaign reelectio
should not have to wait and see is some sort of action so if we don't see an agreement between the two leaders in the senate, i expect a bill to go on the floor. and i've asked senator reid to do this, put a bill on the floor that makes sure that taxes on middle-class families don't go up. that unemployment insurance is still available for 2 million people, and that lays the groundwork then for additional deficit reduction and economic growth steps that we can take in the new year. >> all of this still developing. and we will have more on all of it with mark shields and david brooks later in the program. >> also ahead >> warner: also ahead, between now and then; protesting a gang rape in india; mass producing high quality education and remembering general norman schwarzkopf. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: the u.s. economy has dodged a potentially crippling strike at ports up and down the east coast and gulf coast at least, for now. the longshoremen's union agreed today to extend its existing contract by another month. that word came after the unio
missed and don't plan on missing any more. >> i'm just so happy to be back with him and i, i'm not going to let him go ever. >> reporter: looks like to see your daddy again or your husband after a separation of a year or 18 months that's just about as close to pure happiness as it gets. >> still to come on a second look, from world war ii to vietnam, the men who put themselves on harm's way to give the troops a little bit of home while away. bob hope. >> and -- >>> tonight we take a second look at troops serving during the holidays. bob hope visited the troops in 2003. we remember bob hope's entertaining the troops. >> reporter: it's hard to believe bob hope was nearly 73 years old when he first entertained the troops in 2003. >> we present the bob hope show. >> thank you, how do you do ladies and gentlemen. this is bob mosquito network hope. >> reporter: and nearly 90 when he entertained troops in the first gulf war. it was his passion. >> it's a thrill to be here in korea. nice to be here at oncave. very happy to be back here. >> happy to be here, i don't know where we are but i'm hap
trying to deflect attention on to me and my colleagues over the past few weeks is that they don't have a plan of their own that could get bipartisan support. the so-called senate bill that the majority leader keeps referring to passed with only democratic votes and despite the deep calls for the house to pass it, he knows as well as i do that he himself is the reason it can't happen. the paperwork never left the senate. there's nothing for the house to vote on the as i pointed out before we took the vote back on july the 25th the democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal, as i said at that time, was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster and that democrats were really serious they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house, as the constitution requires, and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called senate bill is nothing more than a glorif
were fanatics. you don't hear the russian side of the equation and the choices that could be had. >> these books have to stand up to controversy and i wonder if we could cover the areas that obviously -- the story is -- has already elicited commentary. and as i read it, your argument is that the united states is primarily to blame for the beginning of the cold war, that stalin and the soviets would have been open to -- were welcoming a continuation of the wartime alliance between the two countries but it was american actions primarily, with in allies, british, for example, which were involved in the cold war. is that accurate? >> i'd say that is accurate. certainly don't consider stalin blameless in all of this, and certainly don't downplay stalin's brutality or the terrible things that were done in the name of the soviet union under stalin's leadership. we think that's important to factor in but if you look at the broad sweep of the history of the united states' relationship with the soviet union, beginning in 1917-1918, when the united states first went to the soviet union, as
to americans. >> we ask president putin, please, can he set an alternate means but don't let me children suffer. >> glor: he met saddam hussein and made it look easy. david martin on the death of general norman schwarzkopf and what the world did not know about him. and "on the road" with steve hartman as a man tries to save his wife of 56 years. an unusual request that gets a surprising response. >> got two of them and i only need one. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> glor: good evening, scott is off tonight. i'm jeff glor. it is the end of a holiday week, but it would appear congress is just getting started. tonight, the president said he is mottestly optimistic about a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff, which would mean avoiding automatic tax increases and spending cuts come, you know, 1. the president spoke to the nation this evening after an hour-long meeting with congressional leaders at the white house. democrat and republican leaders have agreed to extend jobless benefits and some tax increases. they appear to remain deadlocked on who exactly
are beginning a campaign, i don't know how large the campaign is going to be, to have inscribed on some of the sleeves that go around their coffee to make it easier to hold, going to write "come together" in a message to politicians in washington, and you know, if coffee can't unite people, what can? >> let's hope. the clock's still ticking. john harwood in washington, thank you. >>> what are the chances that a deal can be reached this week? jonathan allen is a senior correspondent at politico. welcome. you just heard john harwood say that there are some rumblings that there might be a 50/50 chance of a so-called mini deal that would do something to avoid the sequestration and avoid the worst of the tax hikes. is that what you're hearing? >> that's how bad it is. we're down to a 50/50 chance of a mini deal. for two years the president and the congress together collectively and also individually essentially abdicated their leadership on the budget. i don't know why anybody would necessarily expect that to change over the next two or three days so the best you could hope for is a little b
an hour too late to my wife shaking me. >> juliet: i don't know what it is about this morning. i'm like in lala land. >> clayton: there is no snow. >> juliet: there's no snow here, sir. >> clayton: it might be be the pending fiscal cliff. >> juliet: that's exactly what it is. >> clayton: honestly if you read the different newspaper reports what in the world is going on with the fiscal cliff, you hear about a small deal sort of in the works between harry reid and mitch mcconnell, maybe it's not voted on until monday, maybe no deal at all. maybe sequestration is going to happen so for that let's go to washington. >> juliet: all right. tick-tock, tick-tock, time is almost up for lawmakers as we say to avert the fiscal cliff. they worked throughout the weekend in hopes of hammering out some sort of deal. >> dave: peter doocy is live in washington and we hustle you over to the capitol. and what is the latest, do you think we'll get something done? >> reporter: dave, we were told late in the evening that legislative staff was going to work through the night, but the only principal we heard fr
but republicans do not, just one more issue they don't seem to be able to agree on. rebecca and jeff? >> with us now is is the editor of the magazine. what is the immediate impact on january one for most americans? >> the first two things that are going to hit are the payroll tax increase, that will affect almost every working american and we ran some numbers and calculated that for a family with two working parents make being $82,000 a year that could tack another $1,600 on to your yearly tax bill. that's big. the other immediate impact is the end of emergency unemployment benefits so for the most vulnerable americans that have already gone over all the rest of the benefits there's nothing else in the pot. >> what about the expiration of the bush era tax cuts? >> for the same family i spoke about, if all of those go through that's $2,600 a year extra on your tax bill. >> so much of the debate has focused on the tax issue but spending is a huge portion of this and there are automatic spending cuts also in place. >> that's right, and those go through all kinds of social pr
on the major indices, puts on the dows or puts on the spiders. i don't know anything about gold. if i'm forced into a hard asset, would i rather look at silver, but in bonds, i think the risk in bonds is extraordinary, but i'm not a bond guy, so it's a little prejudice, but that's a dangerous play to me. >> see you later. all right. here we go. we're going into the last hour here as we wrap up the trading week near the lows of the day and of the week, down 142 points. stick around. we may hear something out of this white house meeting during this second hour of the "closing bell" which gets under way right now. >>> and welcome back, everybody, to the "closing bell." i'm mandy drew i sitting in for maria bartiromo. lots of drama in washington. congressional leaders have arrived at white house. they arrived there about an hour ago with three days to go before we go over that proverbial fiscal cliff. they are meeting with the president and the treasury secretary timothy geithner, and they are trying to hash out a deal. but reports that the president has nothing new on the table has ended up spook
a number of years in the building. if sam raburn is not a reflection of that, i don't know who is. >> how about presidents under which you have served? >> ronald reagan. i had the honor of serving with him and he signed air quality district act for southern california. the first preschool program in the country was signed by ronald reagan. people hardly believed that but he was willing to use government in a way that was responsive to real challenged that government should be dealing with. i was proud that we had a chance to work together in connection with some of that. >> if you look across, it's a lot of history, 34 years altogether, is there a time when you look back and say those are the best years. those are the ones i enjoyed the most. >> every year that goes by it amazes me that i am still here. i did not plan to be here this long. if i did not have the chance to serve in some of those appropriations we would not have stayed this long. between now and then, there is little chance -- there are many ways to impact the process and the future of congress itself. it is my intention to
suspect they don't want to use them because that would galvanize the exact international response they're trying to avoid. the don't want this type of mass blood-letting that will compel the international community to intervene much more assertively than it has. so i don't think they're going to use chemical weapons. the fear is, though, if the regime -- if the opposition gains the upper hand, if the regime is on its last legs will they want to go down in flames or will they want to launch a chemical attack against israel, for instance, desperately trying to turn a domestic conflict into an arab israeli war that will take the pressure off them for a little bit, coe aless the people around israel and soing for. that's the dooms day scenario. >> wonderful, thank you so much for being here. [applause] >> this event took place at the 17th annual book festival in austin, texas. for more information, visit i was working for general nick nicholson doing really cool things, supporting my country. maybe i should write a book. really? compared to ben wagner? really? compared to jacob salvi as an
by the developments out of washington. >> yeah, sure, if we don't see any kind of compromise whatsoever, you'll see this s&p 500 trading in the 1360s next week. i think you'll get a short-term deal, address some of the issues, not really solve anything, kick the can down the road much like they do in europe and get your mild positive reaction going into the jobs data on friday. >> do you think we get a definitive move in this market one way or the other with some announcement out of washington, or is this market just so tired of all of the developments there? what do you think? >> well, there's still a risk-on trend, and if they kick the can down the road or actually come to some kind of compromise, that trend is intact, and you'll see going into the first few months of the year i believe very positive price action for all the equity indexs? >> what now, rick? what say you? what now? >> i liked dan greenhouse's comment. in a perverse sort of way. if there really is any austerity, you'll hear an ouch or some squawking or bellyaching which is the fiscal cliff. if we went over the cliff, they be we ac
"show and tell". you don't talk about anything unless you could first show something. it was back in september when i had the privilege of being a delegate at the democratic national convention, and on that monday preceding the convention african-american faith leaders gathered at the historic friendship baptist church of charlotte north carolina. the guest speaker was dr. calvin bust, pastor of the great absiddian church of new york where he succeeded his father as pastor and was the first black from new york to serve in the u.s. congress, and got over 67 bills passed through congress including title seven, head start, national student loan program, but that preacher dr. butts had lifts us to the seventh heaven with his oratory and after the service was over as i followed the platform party out to the foyer of that great cathedral there i looked up and i beheld a beautiful quilt at the center of many other quilts that the quilting ministry of friendship church had put on display, and when i saw that quilt that caught my eye i said to the pastor "dr. clifford jones, i want that q
. we don't have the exact time. when it goes, we'll go there. investors getting quite nervous. obviously the dow dropping below 13,000. the first time since early december. fear index is spiking the vick. what going over the cliff will mean for you and your money. we will talk about it this hour. >>> airline stocks flying high sitting at 1 1/2 year highs. will it be smooth skies for the industry next year in 2013. phil lebeau has the report. >>> how about housing? what a story housing has been this year. a milestone. home prices on track for their first year-over-year gain since 2006. is the worst finally over? some say yes, others say no. what does michelle caruso-cabrera say. >> tyler, let's drill down to the numbers you were talking about. only four hours to go until america goes over the fiscal cliff. the dow jones industrial average down 113 points. had been down 148 points. look at that as we come on the air back above 13,000 level, not by much. the nasdaq, the biggest decline. 33 points. below 3,000 now at 2957. actually, hasn't been below 3,000 before that. s&p lower b
and they don't put it in perspective. how much are we talking about in terms of revenue. as a share of the revenue we're going to raise over the next ten years. how much are we talking about saving in these accounts in relationship to how much we're going to spend? i think this is lack. -- is lacking. i think if it was added it would change people's views about how difficult or how not so difficult these changes might be. other mandatory spending. the president talks about savings there on a base of $5.1 trillion. that's a savings of 4% in other mandatory accounts. things like ago gri culture -- things like agriculture where we have passed in the senate a farm bill that saves $23 billion. that is certainly something we could do. let's go to the next if we could. so already an act of savings from the budget criminal act and i hear all the time the senate hasn't passed a budget resolution for three years. instead of a budget resolution we passed a law called the budget control act. and that budget control act in many ways was much stronger than any resolution because as all of you kno
